American Hebrew Academy

Tel: (336)217-7100
Grades: 9-12 | 163 students
The American Hebrew Academy was established to provide an outstanding co educational college preparatory program and Jewish secondary education to intellectually motivated and academically able students who are prepared to engage in the rigorous discipline of its dual curriculum.
The Academy seeks to educate the whole student, mind, body and soul.
The curriculum combines humanities and the arts, natural sciences and mathematics, social sciences, technology, physical education and sports.
It incorporates the texts, traditions, history, practices and beliefs of the Jewish people.
This enriching curriculum is taught within the setting of a liberal, pluralistic Jewish boarding school for grades nine through twelve.
At the American Hebrew Academy, the culture and values of the Jewish people create the living environment for the school community that nurtures and challenges each student to maximize his or her academic, personal and spiritual development.
We seek to produce young adults whose strength of character and Jewish identity become lifelong resources for personal growth, commitment to the creative continuity of the Jewish people, and the improvement of the world in which we live, while preparing students for admission to the finest colleges and universities and positions of leadership in the Jewish community.
